New to group and noticed the posts are all old....oh please, is there anyone out there who has been through this- or is actively in withdrawal from a benzodiazipine??? That includes Xanax, Ativan and Klonapin amongst a few others. ALSO have stopped Ambien which isnt really a benzo but apparently quite similar.
Hang on girl. You aren't losing your mind. I hope you have not stopped these medications cold turkey. A proper taper down system is the best to help with withdrawals and not cause you additional medical problems.
I hope you are also consulting with your physician, clinic or someone who has been through this experience.
I wish you much luck. You are in my prayers. Reaching out is a fabulous step!
